I don't think Robert is my friend. :( And I don't really 'hang out' on Facebook but I do check it every day. I got out of the habit of checking PS every day when the semester crunch invaded about a month before juries. :lol:

But he hangs out there a lot. Or checks it, whetever :wink:
I wonder if maybe the concept of a discussion forum is outdated, and we should move our asses over to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or some other social network.

Not exactly. Many websites message boards thrive with the help of these tools, but they are not good places for discussions, nor are they good places to centralize your audition room. YouTube attracts more idiots than anything else, and you can't require people to upload video when it will likely cost a good bit in sound quality even compared to mp3.

For instance, if I am in one of those periods where I'm not paying attention to PS and you update your status every time you upload something here, then you might attract me over here to comment. 'Oh, look! Chris has posted some Bach-whatever; I should go listen and see if I can find anything to nitpick about it.' Not that you care about my comments specifically; it would probably be the same for everyone you are connected to. Also, if you or anyone else were to do that via Twitter, you can set Facebook so that all Twitter updates show up in the Facebook feed.

I wasn't suggesting those other places are better in every way, only that many people seem to prefer them these days. I think that is part of the reason why the forum gets ever more deserted.

Currentely working on..
Chopin Etudes op. 10 nos. 3 & 12 (Already have a portion of these in my head, but they will still be very difficult. )
Rachmaninoff Prelude op. 32 no. 10 (My favorite! The rhythms in the recapitulation are destroying my brain, though.)
Scriabin op. 11 no. 1 (Which has triplets, but they are not marked as triplets :? )

My teacher is on vacation, so I'll have to have all of these prepared by the time she gets back. Hopefully I'll survive :(

I LOVE that Waltz! Have you heard Rachmaninoff's recording? It's my favorite. :D

Looks like a fun (but very difficult :wink: ) grouping of pieces, good luck!

Not so fun??? OMG, that capriccio is one of the most fun things I've ever played! It's tricky, but rewarding to learn I think. I like the whole partita, but I think that movement is my favorite.
